Giancarlo Stanton's grand slam in the ninth inning gave the Miami Marlins a dramatic 8-4 win over the Seattle Mariners to open a three-game set.

Three straight batters reached base against Yoervis Medina (0-1) to set the plate for Stanton, who cracked a 1-1 curveball over the wall in left-center for the win.

Stanton finished the game 3-for-3 with five RBI and two runs scored, while Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a solo home run for the Marlins, who have won two of three.

Nathan Eovaldi pitched six innings and gave up three runs -- one earned -- on seven hits, while Steve Cishek (1-0) tossed a perfect ninth for the win.

Brad Miller and Corey Hart each drove in a run for the Mariners, who have dropped their past four. Chris Young was tagged for four runs on seven hits in just three innings of work.
